Los siguientes chistes, anécdotas y tiras cómicas las he ido recolectando a lo largo de años de leer escritos divertidos sobre nuestros compañeros, los perros. Espero que los hagan sonreír -o reír a carcajadas- de la misma forma que iluminaron mi día cuando los leí por primera vez, o cada vez que los releo!
Desafortunadamente, en muchos de los casos, no sé cuál es la fuente. Así es que, si alguien sabe a quién debo darle crédito por su buen humor y su cariño a nuestros perros, por favor me lo deja saber para hacerlo de inmediato.
agregando más -en especial en español!- a medida que los encuentre, así
es que pásense a menudo a ver qué hay de nuevo.

… You have seen the ads on TV that promise amazing results from all sorts of contraptions - the thigh master, the hip master, the belly buster.
Well dog lovers take heart! There is no need to invest in fancy equipment. With this sure fire fitness program, a dog is all you need! The following exercises can (and will) be done anytime, anywhere.
INNER THIGHS: Place the dog's favorite toy between thighs. Press tighter than the dog can pull.
WARNING: Do not attempt this exercise barelegged - dogs who favor shortcuts to success will dig. Ouch, ouch, baaaad dog!
UPPER BODY: Lift dog off the couch, off favorite chair, off the bed. Repeat, repeat, repeat. As the dog ages, this process is reversed - lift dog onto couch, onto the bed and so on.
TONING: Remove your puppy from unsuitable tight places. If they are too small for him, they are certainly too small for you. Do it anyway. Repeat, repeat, repeat.
BALANCE AND COORDINATION:
Exercise 1: Practice not falling when your dog bounds across the full length of the room, sails through the air and slams both paws into the back of your knees.
Exercise 2: (for use with multiple dogs) Remove all dogs from lap, hurdle the ones between your feet and answer the phone before it stops ringing.
Exercise 3: (for those with older dogs) Attempt to cross any room without tripping over the dog. Get off couch without crushing any part of a sleeping older dog.
UPPER ARMS: Throw the ball. Throw the squeaky toy. Throw the frisbee. Repeat until nauseous.
(Alternate): Tug the rope. Tug the pull toy. Tug the sock. Repeat until your shoulder is dislocated or the dog gives up - we all know which comes first.
HAND COORDINATION AND SPEED: Remove foreign object from locked jaw before dog swallows. This exercise is especially popular with puppy owners. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Remember, this is a timed exercise. Movements must be quick and precise (think concert pianist) to prevent trips to the vet which only offer the minimal exercise benefit of jaw firming clenches.
CALVES: After the dog has worn out the rest of your body. Hang a circular toy on your ankle and let the dog tug while you tug back.
WARNING: this is feasible only for those with strong bones and small dogs. Have you taken your calcium supplement today?
(Alternate): Run after dog - pick any reason. Dogs of any size can be used for this exercise. Greyhounds are inadvisable.
REFLEXES: When entering house from shopping trip empty arms of packages and attempt to catch dog as he hurls himself into your waiting arms.
(Alternate - especially for sporting dog or Lakeland owners) After the dog has gone for a nice swim in some odd looking body of water, dodge the green spray as he violently shakes the slime out of his coat.
NECK MUSCLES: Attempt to outmaneuver the canine tongue headed for your ear, mouth, or eyeball. This is a lifelong fitness program. A dog is never too old or feeble to 'French kiss' when you least expect it.
BONUS OFFER - for owners of multiple dogs: Do NOT invest in that new mattress to help you stop tossing and turning. Throw away those special pillows that guarantee an undisturbed night of sleep. Share your bed with Fluffy and friends. With one stretched out on either side of you and another sleeping peacefully between your ankles, you are guaranteed not to move a muscle all night!
Recently I visited a small bar in Globe, AZ, and the only other patrons were a man and his dog. Both seemed interested in a movie that was playing--- especially the dog. He growled and snapped when the bad guy came into the scene. Whined when things got sad and wagged his tail vigorously at anythinghappy or funny.
At the end of the movie I walked over and said to the man, "You know I'm surprised. Your dog really seemed to enjoy that movie." His owner shrugged and replied. "Yeah it surprised me too. He hated the book."
